Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink and Global Exchange and one of the country's pre-eminent activists examines the horrific implications of the high-tech murder, extra judicial execution, and spying by aerial drones currently being carried out by the US national security state and proliferating to a city near you. Seattle is one of 30 "test cities" already deploying remote controlled aerial drones. These drones range from the size of a mosquito to a medium size airplane and have provoked international citizen opposition as well as a new arms race. In this talk, we take a close look at the situation and consider what to do about it. The title of Medea's new book is: Drone Warfare: Killing By Remote Control.
